Bra Review – Bravissimo Paradiso Plume
Earlier this week saw the introduction of some gorgeous new bras for the early spring season at Bravissimo. New on the block, own brand bra Paradiso Plume had me smitten the moment I saw it online. I was tempted to place an order from the website but I decided I couldn’t wait and made the trek up to Newcastle today; Eldon Garden bound to Bravissimo.
If you’ve not yet seen Paradiso Plume, get ready for a juicy feast for the eyes! It’s tropical jambalaya is a vibrant and intoxicating explosion of feathers in heady blooms of fuchsia and peacock blues. This beauty looked stunning on the Bravissimo model and the lofty half cup balcony shape sold it to me. Sadly – and I’m truly dispirited to say this – it didn’t work for me in the slightest, teensiest bit. Gutted.
|I’m pretty! Oh so pretty!|
|Looks kinda okay… except the wide straps and cups!|
|See the bulging on the left cup?|
|The straps are disappearing into my armpits|
|I look like I’m wearing a backpack on my shoulders!|
I’m quite relieved I did come to try this bra on as opposed to ordering it on a whim as it’s not a great design at all. Now, my boobs are close set and bottom heavy, I’m thinking this bra may better suit wide set and full up top boobs. If this is you, Paradiso Plume could look fantastic on you. I’m just miffed it’s a no-go for me.
What do you think of the style and pattern of the Paradiso Plume? Do you think it would suit you better? I would love to hear how you got on if you’ve tried it too.
